    I have a nice box of My Father Cedros Deluxe Eminentes scheduled to arrive on Wednesday, and we are supposed to have almost two feet of snow by then. My greatest fear is that I come home from work and don't see anything, and then a week later I find a frozen block of cigars buried under a foot...

    Hi all, new to the forums but I recently followed the pinned tutorial on how to make a coolidor. My dad had a vintage steel coleman cooler in the attic that we pulled down for this purpose. Looks like this...

    So I went to the local B&M that's across the street from my work to pick up a couple of sticks, and when I checked the hygrometers in the humidors, they're both reading 44-45% RH. Seems to me that that is a bit on the low side for cigar storage. Should I just write this place off as a point of...

    So I decided to pick up a digital thermometer/hydrometer to check up on my humidor. Humility is fine (beads) but the temp is 76F. I have seen a bunch of number thrown out for what temp the eggs hatch at, 74F, 80F. Is there a reliable number? Its hard for me to get the temp lower since the...

    So I have to leave for 3 weeks and there is no way that I can bring my tupperdor. I know that it is recommended to air the tupperdor out once a week or so, but will it be harmful to my sticks if I leave for 3 weeks without it being aired out? I don't want them to taste terrible when I return b/c...

    I keep seeing a severe shortage of ammunition everywhere I go - even online most 9mm items are backordered. I assume this is a combination of the economy and crime but also impending legislation that many fear Hussein will pass. Thoughts?

    We are having a very warm week here in Southern California, and as such, my desktop humidor has been hovering around 68-69 RH and 74-76 degrees. I predicted I would have temperature issues during the summer months, so all cigars in my humidor have been frozen for 3-4 days prior to being...

    Hey all, just set my new humidor up with 65% beads and a digital hygro, I didn't realize however that I really dont have a way to control temp, my room has no A/c, the only thing i could thing is to keep them near the window (that doesnt get much sun) so they might get a cool breeze, but thats...

    I live in a top floor apartment that tends to get pretty hot in summer. Of course I will use AC but even so, I'm worried that I won't be able to keep the temperature below 75 all the time (no central air). So, in order to prepare for the inevitable heat wave, what should I do IF I find that I...

    We did a lot of laundry at my house this weekend, load after load. As a result the laundry room (where I keep my sticks) got quite warm. The humis were reading almost 80...like 78 or something. At the end of the day I put some ice packs on top of the humis and the temperature came down pretty...

  15. Cigar Accessory Questions
    I know the generally accepted guideline for cigar storage is 70/70, but I opted for 65% beads. My concern is that my humidor is normally at a temperature of about 75d or a bit more, even in the basement, given that we don't always run the A/C here at my place. Should I be concerned? Any long...

  17. Habanos Discussion
    I'm still new to Cubans, I purchased a few at a La Casa Del Habanos in Puerto Vallarta. Now I'm looking to purchase a box and think I've located a reputable dealer in Hong Kong. My question is about shipping time. They say it will take 7-10 days for delivery, is this too long for the cigars...

    First of all I'd like to say thanks to all of you for sharing your experience with me. All the "how to spot a fake" web sites seem to be firm on the rule that straight notched dividers=fakes, No Exceptions. Well, you guys were right, there ARE exceptions! These cigars are definitely the real...
